Wanda in death is survived by her brother Steve and his wife Anne and their children and grandchildren, her husband Harold, with their son Brian and wife Glori, son Ned and wife Beverly.

To Harold and family,

When I was younger, I really enjoyed looking after your outdoor kitties when the two of you were away from home, I am so sorry for your loss and I pray you and your family. Rest in peace, Wanda.

To Harold and Family,
I also am a member of the Service Dog Project Community who loved hearing "Harold and Wanda" at mail call every day. I have enjoyed Jimmy Dean breakfast bowls a couple of times a week after hearing of them on the poo pickers Wanda sent in. Sending my sympathy, love and prayers to the family. May Wanda rest in peace.

As a longtime CP, I have smiled daily (except Sunday) when Carlene opened the envelope from Harold and Wanda. If there had been a holiday, sometimes 2 envelopes. My heartfelt condolences to Harold and the entire Euwer family. Wanda, may you rest peacefully as you join members of the SDP family...2 and 4-legged.

Wanda and Harold brought so much joy to Mail Call at the Service Dog Project. My heart goes out to Harold and all the other people who loved Wanda!

I felt like I knew Harold & Wanda - opening their mail - usually poo picker cards - each night I was there. I would have really liked to have met her - both of them in person. She was a good soul and a generous person. Will miss her contact by mail - may her spirit be blessed and at peace.

Another Gentle Spirit has made her way to heaven! What smiles and joy Wanda brought to daily mail calls at Service Dog Project - a joy it seems she shared with all! Prayers of peace and comfort to all that loved her, especially the love of her life, Harold, from another follower of SDP!

Another SDP follower here. So many of us sitting in front of our computers every day at 5 o'clock (eastern time) looked forward to Carlene opening the mail from Harold & Wanda and we would all say "Harold & Wanda" even tho no one could hear us. It was such dedication to send poo pickers every day that we admired and counted on, we are all family.

My condolences and prayers for Harold, family and friends of a truly wonderful lady, may she live on in spirit, as she will live on in our memories.

I loved watching mail call on Service Dog Project and hearing Harold and Wanda. Charlene loved looking at what you were eating on the poo pickers and she did try the Jimmy Dean meals. Will miss hearing your names. My sincere sympathy to you Harold and your family at the loss of your beloved Wanda. Heaven has a new angel.
